"A woman is dead after she was accidentally [sic] shot by a Florida police officer in a citizen training academy roleplay scenario gone wrong. Mary Knowlton was one of two participants randomly selected from a group of 35 for a shoot-don't shoot simulation during a two-hour training Tuesday at the Punta Gorda Police Department, Chief Tom Lewis told reporters at a press conference." [editor's note: There are two ways a gun can be fired by an adult: Intentionally or negligently. "Accidentally" doesn't exist as a category of shootings by adults. And "citizen training academy" is governmentalese for "publicity/propaganda operation" - TLK] (08/09/16)

    “There are two ways a gun can be fired by an adult: Intentionally or
    negligently. “Accidentally” doesn’t exist as a category of shootings by
    adults”

    Exactly……period, no exceptions.

    Unfortunately , the US is now a country in which NO action by a State functionary can be regarded as negligent and their mere intention is a synonym for justified.
